The double cleansing method

innisfree jeju volcanic pore cleanser

Basically it is as it sounds, cleansing twice. This is a great way of getting you face really clean.

How many are using, one cleanser, and then a toner on a cotton pad. Then you look at the cotton pad, is it clean? No, most often it is not. What people, including me (before Korean skincare was all on my brain) did, was using toner as your last step. Korean toners are so much more than that and should not be used as a last cleansing of the residue step. You can read about Korean toners here 

What is the Korean skincare routine

My Korean skincare routine

The skincare I learned when I was younger was, cleanse tone and moisturize, that’s it. Nothing more and nothing less. Sometimes I even skipped the toner part due to that I felt more dry (probably used toners with alcohol in. The reason for alcohol in toner was probably due to being afraid of acne and thinking that that would be the solution.. ohhh my how wrong I was.. When I grew older I started using toner without alcohol and an eye cream. The toner I sometimes skipped.  This is what I think is most common in the rest of the world (except Asia that is).
